Ever have “one of those days…?” Of course you have – we all have! And the truth is, they just stink. But did you know that it’s possible to have fewer of those days with improved intellectual health? On a bad day, we barely scratch the surface of our intellectual health. But on a good day, when we stretch ourselves just ever-so-slightly beyond our comfort zones, the sky’s the limit!

Intellectual health is important to overall wellness in a variety of ways. By definition, it encourages us to recognize creativity and to constantly expand our skills and knowledge base. With improved intellectual health come more personal resources that we build as we explore, with an open mind, the world around us.

Developed through personal and professional research, play (yes, play – sports, board games, tickle fights with the kids…), work, new experiences, multi-cultural interactions, personal relationships, and community involvement, opportunities to improve our intellectual health abound. Let these articles by A Change For Better and our contributors inspire and assist you in your journey to up your intellectual game!
